In Win8, they aren't forcing anyone to use their stupid widget-desktop either. The thing is, they're putting dev time into it. XP in the Classic theme is nice and clean. With 7, even if you disable Aero it still gets all over-helpful. I hate the way it manages the system tray, and the pinning thing that's trying to be like the OSX dock and failling.
I absolutely hate the shit out of 7. Everything about it fucking sucks. Seriously, give me XP SP4 and I'll be happy. A spiffy UI is only cool if you have the option of turning all of the extra graphical shit off.
